Father of Radio Astronomy - Jansky Monument

A monument to the 20th century scientist who figured out how to read "noise" from distant galaxies is surrounded by a new form of background noise. Bell Laboratories researcher Karl Jansky's stylized radio antenna sculpture is now flanked by a recently constructed neighborhood of upscale single family homes. This residential development was part of the plan to save the historic Labs campus.
